I do not know if any of you have read the debate on the Game Programinb board, but apparently, they reckon C++ is rubbish for game creation and we should be using BASIC and Java.
Personally, I think it is a waste of a thread. I do not want to start any arguments, but I have created sevral small games all in C++ without much hassel.
C++ I have heard is what the Japs use in japan when making Zelda and Final Fantasy ect.. So why would they say C++ is a total waste on game platform?
It is very handy to use, and the OOP side of it is much user friendly than the C language structs -- very handy in game creation I am sure you will agree.
What is your say on the theroy??
